English singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran has revealed his hit Thinking Out Loud was co-written by a close friend.
Amy Wadge, a struggling songwriter unable to pay her own mortgage, drove to Sheeran’s house and asked if she could write a song with him.
In a recent interview, Sheeran said the hit changed her life.
“[Wadge] was going through financial troubles about a year ago … She drove to my house – my album was nearly done – and she asked if I could put a song from when I was 17 on the deluxe album,” Sheeran told The Mirror.
“While she was there, we wrote Thinking Out Loud … Now she never has to worry about money again.”
